Petition Call on Government to commission an independent technical review of HS2

HS2 cannot meet its stated objective of delivering “..hugely enhanced capacity and connectivity between our major conurbations”.

We call on HM Government to commission an independent technical review of every aspect of the HS2 scheme to determine how and why this failure has happened.

More details

HS2 is an ill-conceived and fundamentally flawed design for a high speed rail line linking London, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester. Originally costed at £30 billion, it is now estimated to cost £56 billion or more. The project is highly controversial because of HS2 Ltd’s failure to evaluate cheaper & better alternatives, its exorbitant cost, insufficient new capacity, poor connectivity, demolition of 500+ homes, serious damage to the Chilterns AONB & Ancient Woodlands and failure to reduce CO2
